I know I wasn’t clear about why I object to people who think they are above the law.[quote=“harry50hn, post:27, topic:12126”]
Now that you have criticized my comment, here is the situation.
Well, HERE is the situation… YOU publicly stated [quote=“harry50hn, post:21, topic:12126”]
if I did not go through Airbnb, the client wouldn’t know about the OCC tax and I could raise my price but because of the tax, I have to keep it lower than my competition.
Your guest is required by law to pay State Sales and Use Tax, and in most Florida Counties a local Tourist Development Tax as well. YOU as the operator of a rental business in the State of Florida are required to collect that Tax from the guest, and forward it to the State. AirBnB has begun collecting and forwarding those taxes directly from the guests because of people like YOU, who intentionally circumvent the law.
It doesn’t matter whether you are renting a space for one day, one week, or one month YOU are required to comply with ALL State and County Regulations. If you want to let your sister, your cousin, your mailman, or your boyfriend stay in your timeshare for free that is your prerogative. But the minute you charge anyone a dime for the use of your timeshare you are in business.[quote=“harry50hn, post:27, topic:12126”]
If I want to rent the unit, I have to lower my price so as to make the final amount more acceptable to potential renters.
You are clueless. If you think the only way you are going to fill your rental is to lower your prices like a cheap whore, you are clueless.
The law is the law. YOU are not above the law. YOU are obligated to comply with the same set of rules the rest of us are required to live by
